The pandemic has changed the recruitment market significantly, and in some cases forever. But where some sectors have suffered devastating losses, there are several that have seen incredible growth. LinkedIn have recently published a report on what jobs are on the rise, where they are based and what skills they require. Read the report here.

ADAPTABILITY is the key word in the 2021 jobs market. Where airline pilots have become supermarket delivery drivers and PR consultants become vaccination centre managers, people need to be prepared to embrace new avenues and skillsets. Another new study by Michael Page has investigated how remote working and COVID-19 has altered the skillsets employees need for their work and what the most in-demand skills will be in 2021.  

The research shows that recruiters want staff who can show FLEXIBILITY. both whilst working in a team and alone. They also want employees with GOOD REMOTE COMMUNICATION SKILLS, as well as the ABILITY TO MOTIVATE REMOTELY as remote working continues well into 2021. Employers believe RESILIENCE will be an important skill over the year ahead, whilst over three-quarters of leaders want their employees to have skills of COLLABORATION.

According to Michael Page, “Successful candidates will be those who can quickly respond to the change in the hiring market, and demonstrate renewed skills that businesses need, such as video interviewing and remote motivation of staff members, which in previous years might not have been as necessary.”
